Problems seem to tower up for DFDS, Royal Arctic Line and Scandlines as the serious and long-lasting financial crisis at P+S Werften in Stralsund worsens. On Wednesday, the CEO of the shipyards handed in a notion of bankruptcy.

“The situation is full of unanswered questions so we will have to wait until we have a better view of the situation before commenting further. We will first have to start a dialogue with the shipyard and our clients”, Vice President, DFDS Communications, Gert Jacobsen, tells ShippingWatch.
